Russia is suffering from shortage of men for over a century


In many regions of the world, men still outnumber women in terms of population. However, this is not the case in Russia, where women outweigh men by a factor of ten million!

According to the Russian Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat), there are around 78.8 million women in Russia, compared to 68.1 million men, according to the 2018 Russian Federal State Statistics Service (Rosstat).

According to the figures, Russian women would practically outnumber men in all regions by 2036, with the exception of Chukotka, a province in Russia’s Far East.

While the statistic may be shocking, the gender disparity in the country is unfortunately not a new problem; it has existed since 1897.

According to a census taken in 1897, Russia had 33.8 million women and 32.1 million men, and the disparity has been growing ever since.

Unlike certain Asian countries, where sex selection is the cause of gender imbalance, Russia’s gender imbalance is caused by conflicts and contagious diseases that affect more men than women.

Women’s population in Russia began to climb around the commencement of WWI, when there were 91.9 men for every 100 women in the country.

The number of men continued to decline as the country faced severe disasters such as the Russian civil war, hunger, and the Soviet Union’s “Great Terror.”

Russia lost almost 25 million soldiers during WWII alone, all of whom were men!

The male-to-female ratio in the Soviet Union became even more imbalanced as a result of the conflict, with 81.9 men for every 100 women.

While there are more newborn boys than girls each year, they are more vulnerable to infectious illnesses and catastrophic health issues.

According to Jens-Hagen Eschenbaecher, a regional communications consultant at the UN Population Fund office for Eastern Europe and Central Asia, female-heavy populations are often linked to variables relating to fertility, migration, and mortality.

However, in many former Soviet countries, the leading cause of death is men’s proclivity to die young, especially between the ages of 40 and 60, as a result of widespread alcohol consumption, smoking, suicide, cardiovascular and circulatory disorders, and alcohol-related accidents.

Russia has already experienced an increase in the number of women in the workforce, with 72 percent of them working as civil workers, thereby making the country controlled by women!
